Baja Beach Double Time Challenge!

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I wish the sun was out here in my neck of the woods, but sadly, the fog has socked us in. Maybe that's why the card I came up with today has to do with a sunny beach scene. It could be wishful thinking on my part, but we definitely have a May Gray day in Southern Californina. Anyway - back to the card, I was inspired to create this from Taylored Expression's Cupcake Challenge sketch #68 and Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #52.
Here's a picture of my full card. I love these colors - besides the fact that they are also very UCLA looking, too :)
Here's the recipe - all supplies Stampin'Up!:
*Embrace Life stamp set
*Baja Breeze, So Saffron, More Mustard, Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Shimmery White card stock
*Delicate Dots and Walk in the Park DSP
*Baja Breeze Classic Ink pad
*Eyelet Border, Scallop Border, Wide Oval, Large Oval, Scalloped Oval punches
*Texturz Embossing plates, Matchbox Bigz XL die, and Circle Cutter
*Chunky Glitter, So Saffron Twill ribbon
I wanted to try making an umbrella with punches since I've seen so many cute umbrellas on the blogs I visit. I used the Wide Oval punch and the eyelet border to create mine.

Thanks for coming by to visit. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hello Rose!

Wow! I love this beach scene. That sun & umbrella are so cute:)

I also wanted to tell you that I loved your purse for this past Friday's give away, but I didn't want to enter, since I just won. I know your the purse lady...did you see Sandi MacIver's purse in the blog tour this weekend? I thought it was so cute. I hope you're having a great weekend!
